Booking Information

Booking Information

This page has all my booking information for guided walking or backpacking trips. If you want to book a guided walk please check my calendar to see if the dates you want are free and get in touch to let me know where, when and what you would like to do and we can take it from there!

“Hill walking, mountaineering and mountain biking are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.”

Above is a participation statement that should be read before making a booking. I strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance which covers hill walking and mountain biking.

Everyone coming on a guided walk must complete a booking form. If it is for a private or bespoke guided trip please wait until we have sorted out the dates. Under 18’s can only take part if they are with a parent or guardian who must counter sign their booking form. I can email a booking form to you if you prefer to be returned by email or post.

How much does it cost?

  • 1 person @ £160 per day
  • 2 people @ £180 per day
  • 3 people @ £200 per day
  • 4 people @ £220 per day
  • 5 people @ £240 per day
  • 6 people @ £260 per day
  • ice axe & crampon hire @ £10 per day

The new guided walking events that are being advertised have a different pricing structure. This is based on a minimum of three people being booked onto a walk to go ahead and a maximum of six.

  • £69 for a one day event per person
  • £129 for a two day event per peron
  • £179 for a three day event per person

Payment is required in full before setting off on the hill and bank transfers are preferred. If you’re making a booking for a multi-day trip longer than three days I will require a non-refundable deposit of £100 to secure your chosen dates.

Be aware that if weather conditions are too bad then plans may need to be changed for safety reasons and in rare circumstances cancelled or postponed. In the event that we cannot go ahead with your booked walk due to weather conditions and it is my decision then I will offer you an alternative walk if suitable, other dates or a full refund.

If you cancel the booking and it is less than 48 hours before we are due to set off then there will be no refunds. However if it is a week before then you will be refunded in full except if it is a multi-day activity over three days where the deposits are not refundable.

If you want more information about the weather forecast for particular mountain areas then check out the Met Office or Mountain Weather Information Service websites. These are great resources for planning and learning about the weather.
